Facing A Serious Criminal Charge In New Jersey, New York Or Pennsylvania? Former Police Officer Now On Your Side.

If you are facing a federal felony charge or cited for a traffic offense, you will likely experience big changes in your life. A federal felony conviction can mean years beyond bars. Even a minor conviction can be costly.

You Have Rights. I Can Help You Assert Them.

But you have rights — including the right to hire an attorney who will be on your side, who will aggressively challenge the case against you and who will fight hard to protect you.

Extensive Experience Defending Against A Wide Range Of State And Federal Cases

I'm attorney Joseph M. Horn. Before I became a criminal defense lawyer, I was a police officer in Mahwah, New Jersey. That experience taught me how important it is for every criminal defendant to have a strong advocate who can assert their rights and tell their side of the story. Without the right advocate, you can get lost in the system.

With almost 20 years of criminal defense experience, I have represented both adults and juveniles in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania facing a wide range of state and federal charges such as:

  • Traffic violations, including speeding, reckless driving and driving without insurance or registration
  • CDL trucking violations, for both commercial truck drivers and trucking companies
  • Drunk driving offenses, including breath test result challenges
  • Drug charges, including sale, possession and distribution of marijuana and other illegal substances
  • Financial and white collar crimes, such as fraud, bribery, identity theft and money laundering
  • Domestic violence charges, including restraining order violations
  • Violent crimes, including murder and armed robbery
  • Juvenile crimes, including marijuana possession, shoplifting and vandalism

I also handle bail and bond hearings, expungements, and probation or parole violations.

I Can Tell When Law Enforcement Made Mistakes Or Violated Your Rights

With my background in law enforcement and nearly 20 years of experience as a criminal defense attorney, I have a thorough understanding of criminal laws and police procedures. In fact, I am a certified instructor for the Police Training Commission in New Jersey and a guest lecturer on criminal law at several law schools in the area.

What that means for you is that I can understand what police reports say — and what they don't say. I can and do notice the red flags that may indicate weaknesses in the evidence. I can see the situation from a police officer's perspective and use that knowledge to help you.
